  3. Remove the Forehead Pad. It is located where the headset touches the forehead. If you are looking at the inside of your headset, gently pull the Forehead Pad towards you.
  4. If lens inserts are used, remove them by gently grasping the inserts in the middle of the frames and pull them away from the headset carefully.
  5. Take an isopropyl alcohol wipe and squeeze out any excess fluid from the wipe, so it is damp but not dripping. Alternatively you can use a clean lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol. It is important that you do not use an abrasive product like a paper towel as it can damage the device. 
  6. Wipe all surfaces of the device including disassembled pieces and cables. Ensure to gently wipe over the cameras and display lenses of the headset and cameras of the controller.
